Today’s gospel is Luke’s version of the same dinner party described in yesterday’s gospel from Matthew. There are really 2 complaints from the Pharisees during the party. One that was in yesterday’s gospel had to do with not fasting. Today’s in Luke has to do with Jesus’ table fellowship: He eats with anyone and everyone, i.e. sinners. Jesus came for the sinners, people like you and me. Jesus also knows that there is more to us than just our sins.
